  • Mgi meteor dp40 / 60

    Anyone runs the MGI color digital presses? The machines are impressive, but I wonder how they preform in real life. Any feedback is more then welcome. Interrested also if anyone runs any other MGI products.

    We have 2 of the older DP40's in France, but all they print on is plastic. I would say it depends on what you want to do with it. The newer DP 60's I believe are $200,000 for the paper version and $250,000 for the plastic and paper. For 60 pages per minute that seams to be somewhat on the high side.

      we've had the DP40 in our shop for about 2 yrs. For toners based CMYK I suppose it's pretty good. If you did decide to buy make sure you get a service plan as we have ongoing service issues. I'd have to ask the owner as to whether he'd buy this again however.

        Yes, the machine is impressive. I bought a DP40 last year (I am in California), it runs great but a bit slow for our business (2000/hr for 8.5x11 color). I am thinking about trading in for DP60.
        If you run paper, envelope and/or plastic + that speed is acceptable, then it's good choice. I can sell it to you at discount (instead of trading in) and have MGI offer you service contract if you want.
        Thanks

              Go for DP 60 Plastic n Paper version, It is really a great machine. Prints variety of substrates.. and speed is also pretty good at around 1600 A3 sheets per hr.. best part is printing quality. So you can think of this machine seriously.

                  Which one you have.. DP 40 Or DP 60
                  Most of the problems related to colors gets solved by stabilizing and calibrating the machine..
                  please tell me the problem in detail, may be i can help you out..

                      Customer PDF's print fine, when we change those PDF's to TIF files and insert them into another file with the variable data the image color is not the same as the orinal PDF.

                      Thanks

                        could be the conversion problem then, maybe you loose icc or similar. I doubt it is the machine / rip fault, it's more like pre-press issue.

                        How dose the machine run besides that? Is registratio front/back tight? Do you laminate prints? and crease them? Any other good / bad points?

                          Yeah, sounds like a conversion problem. Anytime you put files through multiple software you run the risk of degradation of colors.

                            Hi

                            Don't go for MGI product.
                            Go for Konica Minolta........

                              hi,
                              why do you think Konica Minolta is better than MGI's DP 60, do you have any of these machines...
                              please share your experience
